You will research a hero and produce a writing piece that includes a title, topic sentence, sequence words, facts, and conclusion. 


You will be given your own computer where you will begin by choosing a Hero from a list of options to research. Then you will research important facts and details about your hero using Padlet. You will fill out a WSQ to tell me about interesting information you read about during your research. You will then watch a YouTube video about how you should fill out a Tree Map. You will fill out your own tree map, which will help you with your writing. You will then create a Glog about your hero, which will contain your writing piece and images of your hero. Once you have completed your glog, you will take a short quiz.
